Title: J'irai la Voir un Jour

Heard Patty's performance at the Ryman last night.  My French is rusty, to say the least.  Anyone have a translation?  Thanks!

I will see her one day
In heaven, in my garden
Yes, I will see Mary
My joy and my love

In the sky, in the sky, in the sky
I will see her one day
In the sky, in the sky, in the sky
I will see her there one day

I will see her one day
I will join with the angels
To sing her praises
And to form her court

I will see her one day
This beautiful virgin
Soon I will be beside her
To Tell her of my love

I will see her one day
I will go near her throne
To receive my crown
In eternal rest

I will see her one day
I will go far from the earth
Upon my mother's heart
Rest without return

Does she have this particular song on CD somewhere? When I heard it at the Cats Cradle in NC, I loved it and I wondered if it was available on CD.

Its NOT on any commerically released cds.  You best bet is to locate a bootleg with it on it.  
Once you find a bootleg that has this particular song on it.  Go to the trading section and ask someone who has a copy of said bootleg to make you a copy or do a B&p for you

--Hope that helped and happy listening!

If this is the same song she performed in London in May, is this the song that can be heard in the background of the Silver Bell version of TOTW? Have been wondering this since I heard it. Thanks for the translation, it's a lovely song.
